InCHIP Ideas Lab: Webinar

Thursday, May 2, 2019
12:00pm – 1:00pm


Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, and Policy (InCHIP) is holding it's first Ideas Lab on June 4th-5th.

InCHIP’s Ideas Labs are designed to: Engage teams of interdisciplinary researchers in tackling wicked problems by exploring new ways of thinking about, studying, and generating novel solutions to those problems. The focus of this Ideas lab is to generate and examine questions such as: How can we better utilize wearable, mobile-based, and other data-rich technology to promote health and well-being and ultimately prevent and manage chronic disease in an ethical and legally sound fashion?

Internal Funding Opportunity This ideas lab also provides an opportunity for participating faculty to apply for internal seed funding. Following the two-day Ideas Lab, the newly formed interdisciplinary teams will emerge with nascent project ideas that they will continue to develop over the following weeks. Teams will then submit proposals to compete for internal pilot funding from InCHIP of up to $50,000.

As part of the preparation for the event, we would like to invite you to attend a one-hour webinar on May 2nd from 12-1PM.

This interactive webinar will: 1) Give you an overview of the different ways of thinking about this problem 2) Describe how an Ideas Lab works 3) Explain the steps leading up to the event. 4) Describe the pilot funding program for this Ideas Lab and possible directions for external funding.

Although the webinar will be recorded, we encourage everyone interested in the topic to attend the live event, if possible.
